2014 - Week 36 Winners

David Lipsky (ranked 17th by Golf Predictor) won the Omega European Masters on the European PGA Tour. The 26 year old American won his first tour title with a play-off victory over Graeme Storm in the scenic Swiss mountains. The Asian Tour regular Lipsky didn't quite win in style, laying up with his second from the fairway bunker after Storm got in a spot of bother off the tee. Still, his ultra-conservative play worked and he took the title in the end. Our top ranked player, Victor Dubuisson, finished in tied 29th and we had eight of the top thirteen plus ties (8/20) in total.

Billy Horschel (ranked 12th by Golf Predictor) won the third event of the FedEx Cup play-offs, the BMW Championship. The 27 year old American wasn't put under much pressure on Sunday and won his second tour title by two shots from Bubba Watson. Our top ranked player, Rory McIlroy, finished in tied 8th, despite two horrendous four putts on the twelfth over the weekend. Overall, we had thirteen of the top twenty plus ties (13/22)*.

*Due to withdrawals, Kaymer and Els make the top 22 in the GP rankings.
